Back to the main COTD
As I said several times this week, Parrotrio
continues a kind of annoying trend: lack of level 8
scales for Performapals. While this monster’s
pendulum effect is nice, it’s incredibly
disappointing that it refers to Odd-Eyes and yet
can’t even help pendulum summon Odd-Eyes Pendulum
Dragon on the high end. I’m just not impressed by
this card, partly for that reason.
Parrotrio’s monster side is also lacking. Really low
stats, and while the birdies can bring out
Secondonkey for plusses, relying on being destroyed
in battle rarely cuts it these days, even with
powerful effects (See: Graydles). I don’t see much
potential for this card in any real aspect, and
because of its restrictive pendulum effect, I don’t
see it ever having uses in wind or winged-beast
decks. Overall, a disappointment in my eyes.
Future Potential: 1.5/5
With all the search options Performapals have, is
this really necessary? Performapal Parrotrio is a
Level 3 Wind Winged Beast-type Pendulum monster with
500 Atk and 500 Def and Scales of 2. The effects are
where this card shines. The only raw stat that
matters is the Performapal name.
The monster effect is lackluster because it only
activates if Performapal Parrotrio is destroyed by
battle. Parrotrio Special Summons a Performapal from
the deck except Pendulum Monsters. That's a very
awful restriction. The pendulum effect changes the
Scales from 3 to 8 if you have a Performapal,
Odd-Eyes, or Magician other Scale, not a hard
condition to achieve. Having the option for a high
or low Scale during the player's turn is excellent
if there were fewer searchable options. As it is
this card works well on its own because it doesn't
restrict what can be Pendulum Summoned. However,
there are many cards that can be searched to make
the Scales be what is needed. As such, Parriotrio
sounds a little flat by comparison.
Score: 3/5 Scales of 3 with effect to Scales of 8
would have been better.
